Today's sickening assassination and assassination attempt in Arizona - amid so much sickening news coming from that state - is the fruition of Sarah Palin's rhetoric of violence and should disqualify her from participation in American public life.
She targeted the victim, amid other political opponents, with gun sights in her political advertising. She urged the American right to "reload" against its adversaries. The remaining grown-ups in the Republican party and the media must end Palin's career as a mainstream public official - something that is well within their power. In the context of the American right's historical reliance on violence to achieve its political aims, Palin should be held directly accountable for this massacre.
